control in decades. the bill's sponsor democratic senator dianne feinstein admitted that the road is uphill. earlier political comedian dino vidalla put the question on social media, with seven twitter followers. >> just moved up. i had six. >> here's what we asked. we asked whether you think that this ban has a chance of getting through congress. so here's what one person says. hate to poop on your parade but boehner went let it get to the floor for a vote. it can make republicans vulnerable before 2014 mid-term elections, and then someone else writes to dean, it will never get through the house unless, of course, obama comes out against it. so dean, people seem skeptical about congress. is that shocking? >> not shocking at all. it's unreal. you know what makes it really unbelievable to all of us is that 90% of americans in polls support universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, what's called the gun show loophole. the assault weapons ban will never pass. that's the interesting thing. congress does nothing. doesn't work on the budget. you know, doesn't pass gun control

, feinstein's proposal and others. what david is pointing out, what you are seeing is similar to the anti-tobacco debate and apartheid debate where congress and washington were the lagging indicators of public opinion so you saw a lot of action happening in the states. colorado is not just the only place, a number of there states are thinking object taking action. it's a much, much better indicator of how quickly public opinion is shifting on something. i think you will see movement in the states and eventually you will see movement at the federal level as well. >> i hope that's the case. david, one-third of homes in colorado have a gun. including of course, the governor's. but the shootings in aurora profoundly effected him. especially after attending so many funerals. i have to ask you, is that what it takes to get changes to the legislation passed? i mean, should we send every member of the house of representatives to the next series of funerals when there's a mass shooting so that they can actually feel the profound impact of these weapons on the life of ordinary citizens of this coun

. california senator diane feinstein said it will instead be offered as an amendment. but that amendment is unlikely to survive because of solid republican opposition. three other gun control measures have been approved by the senate judiciary committee: a measure to decrease gun trafficking, a proposal to increase school safety money, and a background checks bill. republican senator rand paul put his support behind comprehensive immigration reform today. during a speech at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, the kentucky republican said the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants should have a legal way to stay in the u.s. >> we will find a place for you. this cause, however, those who work for reform must understand that a real solution must ensure our borders are secure. we must also treat those who are here already with understanding and compassion without also unduly rewarding them for coming illegally. >> sreenivasan: bipartisan efforts are under way in both the house and senate to overhaul u.s. immigration laws. today speaker of the house john boehner called the house version a

this in the past and what dianne feinstein should do is look at their own party and say are there enough democrats to vote for the broad reaching measures and the answer is, honestly, no, there is not. they should have spent more time working on maybe just background checks or mental health issues and looked at actually the prosecution of crimes of those that commit gun crimes. right now in this country, you get about 4.3 years, if you use a gun in a crime, including pulling the trigger and miss, that's where they could have made real headway, they didn't do it and it is because they wasted so much time on something they couldn't even get done with their own party. >> he said sweeping, many people don't see it as sweeping. >> well, you know what, this is a situation where we have 6-year-old children getting shot, why do people need these guns that you use on a battlefield to begin with? and i think that, you know, it is such a tough issue, responsibly, people who are into hobbies, that's one thing, but these power weapons and the fact you can slaughter so many people, we have to do something. we h
